The Effects of Dry Hair


Hair needs moisture to stay ‘healthy’. If you constantly find yourself wondering why your hair is stuck at the constant same length year after year, dry hair may be your issue.

Lack of moisture in your hair can lead your hair to become brittle and prone to breakage. It also doesn’t help when your hair is constantly hanging out around your neck playing friendly with your moisture sucking fabric clothes.

To combat dryness begin a regimen of constantly adding it to your hair and sealing it in, whether with a butter or oil. If you don’t see results right away don’t give up. Hair is like a plant, you won’t be able to see and feel the effects of the moisture right away. It first needs to catch up on the water it needs.

Add leave-in conditioner into your hair regimen. Do you constantly wash your hair and just leave the shower? Leave-in conditioner not only adds some extra needed moisture back to your hair, it also locks it in.

Conditioners! Why spend money on those products at the store when they contain things like drying alcohol and more? Do it yourself!

Avocado Shea Butter

Place the sliced avocado, unrefined shea butter, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), and apple cider vinegar (ACV) into a blender. (There is no need to melt the shea butter ahead of time.)  Blend all the ingredients thoroughly and add more EVOO, if necessary, until the mixture reaches your desired consistency. When done, apply to the hair and let sit for 30 minutes.
